Nursing Program Planned at Athens, Ga. Campus
ATHENS, Ga. – Piedmont College says it will begin offering
a bachelor’s degree program in nursing at its Athens campus nest
The college has been offering a bachelor of science in nursing
degree program at its Demorest campus for 10 years.
Linda Scott, dean of Piedmont’s R.H. Daniel School of Nursing at
the private college’s main campus, says the shortage of nurses has
grown worse in that time.
Scott says the college plans to begin enrolling students in
February for classes that will begin next August. She says students
will have the training of registered nurses, but also take courses
in research, community health and basic liberal arts.
